Squirrels store food in bus. Are they bus nuts?

That photo looks like a postcard of one I've seen somewhere on the Net.. Gonna have to do some research. Is it real, or Memorex?  Undecided

Clifford,

Have you actually seen this bus? Is that pic a real pic of the bus?

Anybody have any ideas how hard parts would be to get? Is there a lot of special parts, or is most everything pretty standard (I would assume that the accordion is very special, and I doubt that they make it anymore).

Man, if it was just a little later on, I would buy this thing. The problem right now is, I can't spend the $$$ right now....Sigh....

God bless,

John

Seriously? I did think that pic looked familiar. Were your serious about the homeless people? If the guy came down a couple thousand, I think that I might just bite Grin. It does sound like it is in rough condition...

God bless,

John

Well, that means there's a 50% chance that the pic IS of the actual bus.  Wink

Wonder what the total length is -- it may not be a LEGAL Iggle!
